Not so fast…… ; this might be a good thing

As other have stated Motorola has been a leader in cell phone since the start. They made bag phone and then the Startack phones (which people still come into the store and tell me are the best things ever). Before the Razr phone were big and balky things. Moto made them cool. I know the Razr had there problem but they did sell over 50 million of them. Let’s think about that for a moment let’s say that 1% were bad, that would be over 500,000 phones. That’s more then some models sell. The Q did to the PDA that the Razr did to phones, show that a small PDA could work and would sell.

People come into my store and swear by Moto and will not buy anything but. The w755 has been one of are better seller for the last few months.

I am not saying that they are perfect but on the whole they make good stuff.

So how could cutting there staff by half and only selling a 12 or so models a year be good?

Simple, Quality.

Moto biggest problem is fairly or unfairly then have gotten the rap of making crappy stuff. If they pour there energy into making a few phones a year but make them well and have one of two that hit it out of the park then they can shed that label and go back to being thought of as one of the better companies out there.

Plus with the way that the Economy is going it might be better to make fewer phones anyway.

Not saying that they do not fold but let’s but this might also not be the end.
